For the final DIY in my 1 Week of Halloween DIY series, I’m sharing one of my favorite things ever. I LOVE cheese, and always serve it at any get-together or party. Therefore, a cute cheese serving board was in order (and though this can work for Halloween it can work for pretty much any day of the year!) This addition to your Halloween party decor is actually quite easy to make, but it rounds out your table decorations perfectly. Here’s how to make it:You Need:
wooden plaque (from the woodworking section at the craft store) / 2 mice paper cut-outs (I’m using Martha Stewart Decoupage paper cut-outs from her Halloween cut-outs set) / black paint (I’m using Chalkboard Paint but your can use any type you want) / decoupage medium (I’m using Martha Stewart Decoupage Matte Finish) / paintbrush / painter’s tape / chalk for writing
How To: 1. Tape off the edges of the plaque if you only want to paint part of it.
2. Paint the area you want to use as the serving surface.
3. When dry, remove the painter’s tape.
4. Place a small amount of decoupage medium where you want to affix your mice.
5. Glue your mice to the surface (I turned mine upside-down because I preferred the pop of white on black), and follow up with 3 coats of decoupage medium, allowing to dry between each one.
